When you file anything amended with the court, you have to sign a document stating that the information contained therein is true, to the best of your knowledge. Most courts have an amendment cover sheet that must be filed with the amended schedules/forms. Since you did not do that, the amended documents you have filed are invalid.

    Sounds to me like you filed amendments to your bankruptcy papers without properly signing them. Most jurisdictions have an amendment cover sheet that has a signature page that is attached to the first page.

    It sounds like you are proceeding pro se, which usually is a catastrophic mistake. The court rejected an amendment that was improperly filed. Get a lawyer immediately and pray that you have not missed any mandatory deadlines.

    For every filing at the Bankruptcy Court there is a certification that must be signed and mailed in. Failure to sign the certification and mail it to the Court will result in the Court striking (or ignore) the filing.
